The CVCR conducts research on a broad range of topics related to value chain and supply chain management. Research projects are conducted by CVCR staff and by faculty and students from the departments of Management (College of Business and Economics) and Industrial & Systems Engineering (P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Sciences).
Our Research Members receive a year-long research project led by a Lehigh faculty member and one or more graduate-level (business or engineering) students. Our Associate Members receive a semester-long student research project conducted by one or more Lehigh students and supervised by a faculty member. (For more details about membership levels, visit the Membership page.)
The CVCR also conducts a specialized type of research project, called a Supplier Satisfaction Survey, that companies use to gather information about their suppliers’ attitudes toward them. For more information, visit the Supplier Satisfaction Surveys page.
